Here are the staples.
I have not once seen her attempt to touch them. The gash is still bothering her a bit but she has only complained when we've had to gently pull clothes over her head and at bath time. Tonight at bedtime, she told us that she couldn't put her head down a certain way because of her boo boo.
We've had two bath nights since the accident and Anna has not wanted to take a bath both times. I think she's afraid that having her hair washed will hurt. She did whimper last night when I sprayed her hair but was okay when I rinsed the shampoo out. Thank goodness the nurse scrubbed most of the blood from Anna's hair before we left the hospital because I've been too afraid to really wash that area.
Speaking of leaving the hospital, here's a cell phone picture of Anna with the gauze bandage wrapped around her head. Yeah, makes her injury look so much worse than it really was.
To end, I'll share a photo I took a few days before the boo boo. I was trying to capture Anna's long eyelashes.
